Working out some thoughts, seeking an elusive coherence …
“Freeorder” names a kind of culture emergent from general and durable individual liberty of thought and action.
I seek to inspire the development of a network of integrating forges (∮forge), ventures dedicated to the emergence of Freeorder.
I am building an ∮forge, one tree in a growing forest.
Such trees are growing all over the world, independent, with no dominant owner or hierarchy.
forge means freeorder generator.
integrating means noticing things that advance Freeorder and gradually discovering, and acting upon, a whole picture.
freeorder means what’s good for explorers within each of us and among us.
explorers names people who persistently ask questions about things they care about and work to do something with the results.
freeorder raises a question more than it provides a solution.
The question: what is good for us, questioners, within each of us and among us?
Pursuits of answers to that question lead to a store of understandings mostly ignored, even suppressed, because they fail to advance political and crony power.
The implementation of things found by this quest generate an emergent social form called Freeorder.
∮forge are on the side of the question, not on the side of a particular answer.
The question leads to deeply individualistic insights that support community, and leads to the rejection of collectivist tyranny.
freeorder (processes made possible by respect for limits) leads to Freeorder (outcomes that sustain those processes). [note the self-reference, and see the preceding entry in Threads]
Briefly, freeorder —> Freeorder
My part of freeorder network is one tree in a growing forest of Freeorder.
My work might be called Project 31.3, taking a name from the third movement of Beethoven’s piano sonata 31, in which we pass through sickness to health.
Andras Schiff, at the piano, explains and illustrates.
This following contains some semi-technical detail, but the story eventually emerges:
